    You know that game you played as a kid, we called it 'gossip'?
    Somebody started with a line and whispered to person next to them and then that person whispered what they thought was said
    to the next person, and so on, until it got to the last person in the circle. Then the last person told out loud, what they heard
    and many times, things got changed in the exchange
    and became much funnier than the original message.
    I have noticed at times, how funny it is, when someone replies to me, and I go from email to the reply, and read, and then the person that comes after that, is either replying to the 'poster', or someone else,
    but it sounds very funny at the moment I read it.
    I thought it would be fun to say a line, and have someone go next and add a line, either relative to that information or just something they thing would be funny, added to it...and keep it going, to see where the story twists and winds to. I'll start...

    They thought maybe it meant someone was sick as mom always went someplace else to "quilt".

    "What is this place" ask the little girl, Rachel. Jake didn't say a word. He just stared at the bright object hanging on the wall.
